Thursday Thoughts.

This post may be kinda all over the place.. Smile Please forgive me!


First, I’m just going to put this out there.

Andrew & I are taking a break. We have been for about a month now. We are broken up, I guess, officially, after 3 and a half years of being together. It was a mutual agreement. We just decided we didn’t want the stress of a relationship anymore. We still have been talking, and we don’t have any grudges. It’s just a life change. I’m independent for the first time in a long time and… it doesn’t feel that different. I guess that shows that the relationship needed to end. It’s a change, but I’m okay. It’s better this way.

One more thing- I decided not to do marching band this year. I had too much on my plate. I finally decided that putting my mental health first was my priority. I will miss marching band, but I need down time in my life to function and to be happy.


I am running again, after a month off! Summer running started Monday. Man, my body needs time to adjust to the humidity. It’s been a rough couple of days.

BUUUTTT today we had the mile threshold test. I didn’t PR, but we weren’t expected to (nobody did!). However, I did finish the mile in 7:10, running faster than girls who have PRs under 6:30!!

Food is making me stronger, now slower. I needed to see this.

I am so thankful for the amazing team I have. Both my therapist and my dietitian have really helped me. I had no idea I could be this much better. Last night, my dietitian talked with me on the phone for over an hour. I am so blessed!!

Question- How do you know when your running shoes are worn out? I think I may need new ones, but I didn’t track miles on mine.


What changes have you made in your life lately?

What quotes keep you going?

How do you prioritize your happiness?

I am waiting…

For my final grades to be posted. (But I met my goal- I’m preeeetty sure I got a 4.0 this semester. YAY! )

For the results of my blood test. I don’t know why it is taking so long for my Endocrinologist to call back Sad smile

To see if school will be canceled or not tomorrow.

The forecast WAS a high of 3 and a low of –20, but it changed… we’ll see!


So far, my weekend has been pretty great.

Friday night I went to a party with some band friends after practice. They all talked about college and prom and it was awkward for Andrew & I! I’m kind of glad I have a year of high school left, but I’m going to miss all of my senior friends SO much. This is what I wore… apparently I looked cute? Since when are baggy plaid shirts with leggings cute?

Please excuse my messy room and dirty mirror. I should probably clean them.

Yesterday was my mom’s birthday! I did a workout with the sprinters and then we did some shopping and went out to TGI Friday’s for dinner.

I split a steak, had a side of roasted veggies, and even split a dessert. NO guilt! Smile Unfortunately, it was too dark for pictures, so you’ll just have to trust me that it was good.


I eat out SO MUCH. Not by choice. I eat out every other weekend with my dad because that’s what we do instead of sleepovers, and it seems like there is always somebody’s birthday or some reason to go out for dinner. I would much rather eat at home, honestly, but I know I am very lucky to be able to afford to eat out and have such delicious food. This morning I did an easy run at my gym and then went over to Egg Harbor to meet my sister & Dad for brunch.


I got my favorite meal ever- A scramble with sweet potatoes, black beans, broccoli, avocado, melted cheese, and scrambled egg. At first I wasn’t going to let myself eat it all, but then I realized I was HUNGRY (I had just ran 4 miles!) and the food was all healthy (even if it was high in calories) and so I finished it. Plus, I ordered a side of berries, and I got fresh strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. It was so good.

Today is the LAST DAY of the yoga challenge! I was bad yesterday and didn’t do the video, so technically I’ve got two left to do. I need to start taking yoga classes because I’ve been saying that forever. Jessica, Leigha, what have you guys thought of the challenge? Maybe I’m just hoping, but I think I might be a little more flexible than when I started!

I’ve been a little lazy when it comes to the blog lately, but I was focusing on my grades and myself. Please forgive me Winking smileWinking smile
